EdVestors’ annual Showcase takes place in April and features innovative projects supported by the School Solutions Seed Fund. The event is an opportunity for frontline educators to share their work with a broader audience. Guests in attendance have an opportunity to take one-on-one with Seed Fund project leaders informally, and observe formal presentations from a smaller group of projects on what they’ve learned so far.
